Something different for dinner 4 nights a week
Tuesdays, Depanneur founder Len Senater cooks up something tasty for y’all
Wednesdays, Quinn Cruise makes supper with fresh local & organic produce from Fresh City Farms
Thursdays we showcase student talent from George Brown College’s Culinary Management & Nutrition program
Fridays we invite guest chefs to cook their speciality — it’s “open mic night” for culinary talent in Toronto
Drop-In Dinners are prepared by a rotating cast of chefs, and are priced around $10-$14, tax included. Dinners start at 6pm, and are served first-come, first served until we sell out, or until around 8:30. No reservations are needed or taken – just “drop in”. Seating is at one of the two big tables or at the window counters. Dinners can also be ordered to-go, and you’re welcome to bring your own containers if you like.
At every Drop-In Dinner, The Dep also offers a selection of hot & cold beverages, a homemade soup by Afoodgypsy ($4) and a side salad ($3), a selection of cookies & ice cream sandwiches by Cookie Martinez, and gourmet popsicles by Augie’s Ice Pops to complement the day’s feature dish. Wherever possible, we try to provide vegetarian, vegan and/or gluten-free options on our menus. Check the event listings for details of specific menus.
The Dep is not licensed, and these events are not BYOB.
We’re always looking for enterprising foodies who’d like cook dinner for a crowd and make a bit of extra cash. If you’d like to do a Drop-In Dinner at The Depanneur, click here to learn more.
